Task


Contributing Staff section that provides information or product to another staff section for the accomplishment of a task.
Coordinated Used when more than one staff section has combined responsibility of some degree with the initiation of a task.
Decision (D) The headquarters that determines the objective, but is not the headquarters that C2's the units that will conduct operations toward the objective. Or, the headquarters that makes the final approving decision of a staff action task.Example: A JFLCC commander will determine the common objective an army and marine force will achieve, but is not the HQs that C2s the army or marine forces toward that objective. Or, as in OP 3.1.4 the targeting process is decided at JTF level with the JFLCC action being a participation performance at refining targets. The JTF determined the targets; the JFLCC refined the targets. The JTF gets a "Decision" label and the JFLCC a "Execution-Participation" label. Selection of the four options of decision, decision/execution-participation, execution, or leaving the cell empty below each of the headquarters types in comparison to the task is based on the mission objective when the task is in term of a force action or in terms of the staff process for those tasks that are purely staff actions.
Decision/Execution - Participation (DEP) The headquarters that decides the objective and C2s the units that conduct operations toward the objective. Or, in a staff action only task the same headquarters conducts the entire staff process.  Example: JTF commander determines the operational level objective and C2s the services that conduct operations toward that objective.  Selection of the four options of decision, decision/execution-participation, execution, or leaving the cell empty below each of the headquarters types in comparison to the task is based on the mission objective when the task is in term of a force action or in terms of the staff process for those tasks that are purely staff actions.
Execution-Participation (EP) The headquarters that C2s the unit that conducts operations toward an objective. Or, for a staffing action task the headquarters that contributes toward the higher headquarters decision process and only contributes to the refinement of that process.  Example: The ARFOR to a JFLCC. The JFLCC determined the common objective between the army and marines. The ARFOR conducts operations to achieve that objective.  Selection of the four options of decision, decision/execution-participation, execution, or leaving the cell empty below each of the headquarters types in comparison to the task is based on the mission objective when the task is in term of a force action or in terms of the staff process for those tasks that are purely staff actions.
Functions Are those actions performed by staffs in support of tasks.  A function for the Personnel services Division would be to "process awards".   This function would support a task listed in the AUTL or UJTL.
Lead The staff section that has first responsibility for performance of that task.
